On The Town column, The Irish Times - 20 June 1998

"Thank you very much your majesty and all the rest of the queens out there," shouted Liam O'Maonlai, much to the amusement of the Welsh crowd. The Flowers played a stomping concert, delaying the crowned one's return by 15 minutes.
After the Cardiff concert, the band hot-footed it over to Bilbao in Spain, to open for the Rolling Stones.
There are tight links between the two bands - the Flowers played on the last Stones album and Flowers drummer Wayne Sheehy used to work with Ronnie Wood.
